The owners of 530 Fifth Ave. have closed on the $595 million sale of the building to a partnership of Thor Equities, RXR Realty and General Growth Properties, sources told Crain’s.

The 500,000-square-foot building was sold by a partnership between Rockwood Capital, Jamestown, Murray Hill Properties and Crown Acquisitions that purchased the building in 2011 for a reported $390 million. The partnership was represented by Douglas Harmon and Adam Spies of Eastdil Secured, who originally marketed Rockwood’s share of the building before eventually selling the whole thing.

Eastdil had also represented the previous sellers in the 2011 transaction.

The 26-story building runs for a full block along Fifth Avenue from West 44th to West 45th streets. The property was built in 1957.
